Tyson Fury has called it quits on his boxing career, announcing his retirement on Friday. The boxing champion and one-time WWE competitor announced that he’s hanging up the gloves, posting the announcement to his Instagram.

Fury wrote:

“Massive thanks to everyone who had an input in my career over the years & after long hard conversations [I’ve finally] decided to walk away & on my 34th birthday. I say bon voyage. [Here’s] a few who made is special along the way>

Fury ends his career with a 33-0-1 record and last fought on April 23rd, retaining his WBC and The Ring Heavyweight Championships against Dillon White. He also made an appearance at WWE Crown Jewel with a win over Braun Strowman, and has teased another appearance — something Drew McIntyre has often stated his wish for as well. McIntyre had a back and forth on social media and in interviews in 2020, teasing a potential match between them.
